    Masai Mara National Reserve

    One of Kenya’s undisputed natural highlights is the Masai Mara National Reserve, which sprawls across more than 1500 square kilometers of the country’s southwest. The park protects a phenomenal array of game animals, including elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo, crocodiles, and hippopotamus in the Mara River. The birdlife is no less impressive, with over 450 resident bird species. However, the true highlight here is the Great Migration, recognized as one of the Seven wonders of the World. To survive the dry months of July to September, some 1.7 million wildebeests, migrate from the parched plains of the Serenge National Park in Tanzania. Along with much smaller numbers of antelope, buffalo and zebra, they move to the more forgiving grasslands of the Masai Mara. In their wake come predators such as lion, hyena and cheetah, for whom these giant herds are an easy source of prey.
